Strikeforce fighter Phil Baroni has been released from his contract and has verbally agreed to join the UFC.
The story was initially reported by Sherdog, citing sources close to the fighter.
Despite his record, which stands at 13-11, Baroni is universally known for having exciting fights. He’s also one of the best interviews in the business and a master at promoting fights, which had to play heavily into the decision to bring him back to the fold.
Baroni dropped a unanimous decision to Joe Riggs in his last fight in June.
